Spring is a great time to start planning those renovation and decorating projects. One of the new rooms or spaces that is gaining attention in our homes is the lounge or living area. This is yet another hardworking space that if it is to work needs to accommodate all the activities you do in the space. As well as now watching TV it is commonly used for exercise, accommodating extra guests (day and night), eating, socialising, reading and quiet alone time.. to name just a few.
So where do you start on that planning journey. Well one of the first things to do is to identify what will be the big players in the room? Are you thinking of introducing a statement fire surround with fire and TV or something unusual such as a piano?
Start with the big items first. Often this is the sofa.. who will it have to accommodate, and what shape will fit the room? By getting these key structures right, the rest will fall into place..
My aim here is to capture moments or thoughts around design. I am constantly inspired by the London design exhibitions, photography and design publications. In fact I get my inspiration from so many places.. By sharing these experiences and thoughts with you I hope to both educate and inform.
